The Humanities Center at Texas Tech University (Lubbock, Texas) is happy to announce a call for papers for our second Annual Conference in the Humanities, to be held in Lubbock on April 13, 2019.  The conference topic each year aligns with the Center's annual theme, which for 2018-2019 is "PLAY.” We are interested in the interdisciplinary study of play in myriad forms and in any of the following categories: art, culture, literature, music, dance, games, sports, politics, technology, and education. This list is open-ended and, in the spirit ofplay, we are open to proposals that catch us by intellectual surprise.

New Feminist Materialism and Queer Studies in the Anthropocene

updated: 
Monday, November 12, 2018 - 4:33pm
gender forum: An Internet Journal for Gender Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

We would like to invite contributions exploring an intellectual meeting ground between new feminist and queer materialisms and affect theory, environmental humanities, science studies, and many more inter- and transdisciplinary fields. New/feminist materialisms and the affective turn are emerging at a time in need for alternative visions of the world threatened by human exceptionalism, ecological terror(ism), and devastating, extinction-fostering capital flows: they pose the question of how to theorize and practice ethical and decidedly posthuman or rather nonanthropocentric feminisms in the geological era of the (late capitalist) Anthropocene.

Non-Binary: Retheorizing Romantic Sexes and Genders

updated: 
Tuesday, November 6, 2018 - 1:16pm
North American Society for the Study of Romanticism (NASSR 2019)
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 30, 2018

This panel seeks to retheorize social constructivists accounts of Romantic sex and gender circulating since the early 80s that continue to persist and insist—however unwittingly—on a binaristic or universalistic normativity (hetero- or otherwise). Moreover, all such accounts are often firmly anthropocentric, offering little flexibility to engage the nonhuman in all of its material forms. More recent New Materialist accounts of sexes and genders provide resources for moving forward from the confines of the discursive prison of sex and gender that retains within it, again however unwittingly or unwillingly, a binarism between the social and the material, the human and the nonhuman.
